I think kids enjoy painting sometimes more than coloring, they perk up and become little “responsible” perfectionists who “won’t spill the water”. Today we painted our Christmas Coloring pages. There are three of them that you can print off.
To add some diversity to your painting, consider gluing some salt onto your page first. It adds dimension and as the watercolors hit the salt, gives the page a bit of “sparkle”. FOr us it was the perfect addition to a Christmas Tree Coloring page – automatic “twinkle lights”. Add pom-poms, sequins or stickers as ornaments for your tree.
For a spelling game, consider cutting out and coloring the letters of “Christmas”. Your child can decorate their Christmas Dinner placemat with the letters – trying to put them in order. OR, see how many other words you can create with the letters C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S.
